Battling the Wind and Waves on the Sea of Commerce is the last volume of the historical – love fiction trilogy, Sailing across the Red Storm Trilogy, of modern Chinese history. Through a riveting representation of the historical journey of the nation and the personal struggles of its characters, this trilogy describes the darkest and brightest pages in modern Chinese history; a harsh and lifeless winter, a warm spring filled with vitality and hope, and a flourishing hot summer.
In Volume 1, Sailing across the Red Storm, the main character experiences the catastrophe of the Cultural Revelation; in Volume 2, Floating and Sinking on the Sea of Officialdom, he enters into the political arena and carries out political and economic reforms. In this volume, he becomes a businessman, participating in market competition and bravely fighting against corrupt officials and profiteers.
Readers will be able to witness how China creates an economic miracle over the course of 30 years after the 1980s and becomes the second largest economic power in the world, in spite of the various social issues that the country still suffers from. Like the first two volumes, this book is a compelling historical fiction with a moving love story.
